12 oz glass on tap. Aged in whiskey barrels. Black pour, with espresso like foam on top. Aroma is loaded with berries, sweet chocolate, whifs of whiskey and oak very nice. Taste is mostly sweet, some whiskey/smoke flavor, a slight roasted caracter is present with a hint of fruity acidity. Palate is smooth, a little bit on the thin side but quite enjoyable. Great balance in this beautifully done oak aged beer. beerbuzzmontreal (3486) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 10, 2010
Pours a pitch black color with a medium, light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and oak. Good, dry flavor of chocolate, roasted malt and oak. The body is medium with a creamy texture and moderate carbonation. MartinT (10102) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 27, 2010
My Bottom Line: Lubiere (14182) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 10, 2009
This Barrel-Aged Foreign Stout relies on its assertive vanilla and aniseed whisky notes to embolden a coffee-like roasted malt flavor profile.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-Ample foam stands atop the reddish-tinged blackness.
-The smooth natural carbonation and levelled residual sugars make for a silky mouthfeel.
-The finish is rather earthy and roasted, a balanced bitterness.
-This is quite drinkable even though the barrel apport is important.
On tap at the brewpub.
A deep dark stout with a thin dark brown head. A pleasant aroma of chocolate and whiskey, raisin, doughy, maraschino cherries, alcohol. In mouth. a complex stout with dark organic chocolate, sweet treacle, pungeant and complex with notes of dark fruits, figs, and warming alcohol. Rich and smooth. On tap at brewpub, Dec. 5 2009. rederic (3344) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 12, 2009
Deep pitch black color, with a pillowy tan-colored head, nice whisky, bourbonish, oaky, woody, faint vanilla, black, chocolate, light roasted malt nose, with a cappucino, dark chocolatey, faint burnt dried fruity accents, and a little boozy warmness in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, warmth, whiskyish, bourbonish, oaky, woody, black coffee, dark bitter chocolate character, with some mild burnt dried fruity notes, with some roasted, black malt undertones, leading towards a warming strong whiskyish, lingering roasty bitterness finish. The whisky tone is too present in this beer for having a nice balancing beer.

In short: A very woody chocolaty boozy imperial stout. Very good sipper. rodenbach99 (4678) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2009
How: Tap at Chambly Beer Festival 2009
The look: Near black body topped by a very small moka head
In long: Nose is a little very woody, somewhat chocolaty and a little boozy. To me the two dominant flavours were wood and chocolate cake. Also notes of almonds and coffee. Low-medium roasted level. Alcohol is apparent but it works well in this dessert sipper of a beer. Here the barrel aging didn’t add much vanilla/bourbon character. There is a lot of barrel in the aroma and taste but here it feels like plain good old wood barrel. Ok, so looks like the new trend of barrel aging imperial stouts has not only reached the province of Quebec but also made its way to the suburbs. I wonder what other American obsession is next in line to cross the border. Please not country music. Please not country music. Please not country music.
Un verre sur place, belle stout noire très foncée, version de la dernière brosse élevée en fût de chêne (jack daniels je crois). belle rondeur, agréable en bouche, le goût du chêne est très présent. (prix exorbitant) bedainedebiere (544) - Terrebonne, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 12, 2009
Oktoberfest in Mascouche, on tap. My english ain’t good enough to translate Dernière Brosse Déchainée but it means you had an awful lot of alchool... And boy does this beer seems to have a lot more alchool than it really does because of the Michigan Whisky powerful aroma that strongly changes the flavors. Great creamy texture and body, totally balanced, with a moderate bitterness. Pretty much in the "wow" category... TaktikMTL (7999) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 9, 2009

sample @ pub, dark, solid head, nice addition on the flavor you can definitely taste the barrel there. Extremely full bodied
